UK University Pledges to Change the Culture of its Animal Research
Feb 03, 2014
After much criticism last year, Imperial College London has outlined a “wholesale reform” of the ethical review and governance of its animal research. The university was subject to an independent review of its management of laboratory animals after being targeted by animal rights groups last December. The review found that animal research facilities were understaffed and under-resourced. In a statement released by the university, a plan of action is described.
